Greening the Gateway Cities Implementation Grants

Financial assistance to Gateway City municipalities and non-profit 501(c) organizations to conduct tree planting and related activities in support of the Greening the Gateway Cities Program (GGCP) objectives of enhancing urban tree canopy.

Projects must achieve tree planting, tree watering, tree maintenance & stewardship and/or impervious surface removal that will have a measurable impact on the present and future urban canopy in Gateway Cities. Projects should focus tree planting on locations with limited tree canopy, particularly within areas experiencing documented urban heat island effects.
